Visiting for the first time?
We look forward to meeting you! Below are the answers to some common questions you may have.
What kind of church is First Baptist Church?
First Baptist Church is committed first and foremost to teaching and preaching the Bible. We believe that God has revealed all that is necessary for life and salvation in the Scriptures, and thus all of our ministries are centered on the careful study of the word of God. We believe that the gospel is of first importance – that Jesus died for sinners and rose again for their justification – and we seek to do life together in light of the grace of the gospel.
What happens on a typical Sunday morning?
Each Sunday morning, we have a Sunday school that meets in our chapel at 9:45AM. This is a more informal time of Bible teaching and discussion.
The Sunday morning worship service begins at 11AM and is the highlight of our week. The service begins with a time of worship through singing, in which we lift our voices to the Lord and one another through both traditional hymns and contemporary choruses. After the reading of the Scriptures and a time of prayer, the Word of God is preached. The Bible is preached expositionally – meaning that the text is explained and then practically applied to our lives. The service will typically end around 12:30PM, but please hang around and fellowship afterwards!
Are there activities or classes for my children?
During the Sunday morning worship service, we have a nursery for ages 0 to 2 and children’s church for ages 3 through 6. In children’s church, your child will learn a Bible story and memory verses and do crafts and activities relevant to that day’s lesson. All of our children’s workers are screened and trained so that you can comfortably worship while your children are well cared for.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us! We look forward to meeting you.
